The Education Minister, P.

There are approximately 6,500 vacant posts in government-run schools and special schools. Out of these, 5,089 posts are in government-run schools and 1,523 posts are in special schools. The filling of these posts will be done through DSCs this year. Additionally, the process of filling 11,714 posts in Gurukuls is underway, with 5,310 posts already filled and the rest to be filled soon.
The district collectors will release the exam dates for these recruitments within two days. The Education Minister emphasized that special attention is being given to the education sector in the state.
In addition to the school posts, there are also ongoing efforts to fill 3,140 lecture posts at the inter and degree levels. So far, 3,096 posts in government junior colleges, 520 posts in technical education, and 280 posts in collegiate education have been regularized.
The notification for the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) has already been released, and the application process is now closed. The TET exam is scheduled to be held on September 15.
The Education Minister also highlighted the government’s commitment to transforming state-run schools to a corporate level through the ‘Mana Ooru Mana Badi’ initiative. The completion of government schools in phase-1 of this initiative is underway. Furthermore, solar-powered systems have been successfully implemented in 1,521 state schools, with plans for extension to all schools in the future.
